HostGator

Hello friends, i am currently hosting with bluehost and I am looking for a new hosting company, I was checking out HostGator, looks pretty good, anyone got any preferences, I currently have a small board with 132 members...

I read a lot of the threads here but couldn't seem to find a host that most people agreed on...

thanks for any help... Mike.

Check the services and Uptime guarantee offered by hosting company and also find reviews of the hosting company before signing up. Hope you find the best

HostGator is great.

They are very strict on account suspensions (due to nonpayment) They will outright refuse even a backup of data and will make you pay for time you were offline (My site was off for like 5 months, so I had to pay just under $50 for the time I didn't use/have access my files)

On the flip side, their support is good. I was running on some money issues and wasn't getting paid for a few more days after my payment due date. I asked for an extension and they gave it to me without any problems. The one thing I don't like about HostGator is that unless you override the error pages setting with .htaccess, if someone gets a 404 error on your site, they'll get one that looks like HostGator's layout, etc with a "Page cannot be displayed thing" So it's like.. free advertising.

I'd give the thumbs up to try them out

I have 4 sites on their shared servers and have had no major problems with them. Support issues a couple of years ago seemed to be really bad but have noticed a big improvement in the last two years. Their community support forum (which they use vbulletin) has also changed as they have staff now assigned to the forums. Online support help is always fast, longest i have had to wait for an operator is 1 minute.

I have 6 sites with hostgator and two of them being forums. Ive been with them for over a year and a half and never really experienced any problems with them. Support is fast although sometimes they have no clue what they are talking about depending on who you get. They offer good plans for reasonable prices. If you go with them dont choose the smallest package because your site will be slow. Go with the 9.99 plan or up and you will not regret it.

I have a dedicated server through Host Gator. They are some good guys and I have never had any problems. There support is awesome! I tried out IX Web Hosting and they suck well if you have a large site they aren't very good.
